Elderly and disabled South Dakotans have until April 1 to apply for property tax relief
PIERRE, S.D. – Elderly and disabled South Dakotans have until April 1, 2022, to apply for property tax relief under South Dakota’s Assessment Freeze for the Elderly and Disabled Program.
Under the program, a qualifying homeowner’s property assessment is prevented from increasing for tax purposes. If the actual value of the home increases, the homeowner still pays property taxes on the lower value.
To be eligible for the Assessment Freeze for the Elderly and Disabled Program, individuals must meet the following qualifications:
Have income of less than $30,423 for a single-member household (Only one individual in the household) or less than $38,029 for a multiple-member household.
The valuation limit for the program is $208,828 or more of full and true value, meaning that properties valued above the limit are not eligible unless the applicant has previously qualified.
Applications must be submitted to your local county treasurer’s office by the April 1 deadline. Applications are available at your local county treasurer’s offices or can be printed from the Department of Revenue’s website at https://sddor.seamlessdocs.com/f/pt38.
